it into the ground or how he moved it. there was no tape on it. the big issue was there was a total failure to find any forensic evidence whatsoever on the tape. more importantly f you remember the only --, if you remember, the own partial profile of dna that was detected absolutely excluded casey. and also excluded caylee from something contact with that tape. that was a mystery. it has not and never will be solved, i suppose. >> greta: i talked to the prosecutor and i asked him, she disappeared or died in june there was a call in august by the meter reader. the remains were found in december. i asked him if the remains had been found in august when the first call was made whether there would have been more forensic clouds which would have indicated cause of death. he -- he said even that was too late do you agree or not? >> i don't agree. possible, possible, possible. that's the case we had. the fact of the matter is, the child was alive june 16th. and was seen with the grandfather on the videotape. if the sheriff's department had done their job, i've always wondered why they couldn't do the slig
october 14, 2008. the big question tonight, will tonight be her last night sleeping there? earlier today, inmates helped set up barricades outside of the jail just in case big crowds show up there tomorrow. if the judge continues his hardline stance exhibited during the trial he could take into account the time already served and give her the full maximum four years for the four counts, the convictions for lying to the cops so she could still have two years left to serve. >> shepard: what about money? could the judge force casey anthony to pay back the tax money they spent on really the lies of three years ago? >> that is absolutely what we expect. judge belvin perry to perhaps apply and force casey anthony to pay that back. the state's attorney office confirming they are figuring out the financial figures to present to the judge. and tim mil miller from texas equisearch also expressed filing a civil suit against casey anthony because they spent $100,000 in the fall, bypassing doing other searches for other really missing children to focus in orlando on finding caylee. >> shepard: we saw

that the defense attorney brought out. and she focused in and brought the real big picture. and the real big picture is, what does the totality of the evidence show? it shows a girl that did not like her life. had two options. one option was to be a mom. or go back to her single life. she chose to sacrifice her baby. i think the jury will see the arguments of baez and what he is looking for is not acquittal but maybe one or two on the jury to decide with them so he can have a hang or hold out and possibly a hung jury. >>greg: the legal panel will be with us through the hour. plus, live updates from the courthouse in orlando and more on the closing arguments from both the prosecution and the defense. thanks to the venture card from capital one, we get double miles on every purchase, so me and my lads earned arip to san francisco twice as fast we get double miles every time we use our card... i'll take these two... matter what we're buying. ...and all of those. and since double miles add up fast, we can bring the whole gang! it's hard to beat double miles! whoa dude.

. the big question, though, is for the prosecution team, what did they do potentially wrong here, because they were certainly very confident in their case. here is lamar lawson. >> we're disappointed with the verdict today and surprised, because we know the facts, and we put in absolutely every piece of evidence that existed. our attorney did an exemplary job. i'm proud of them and i stand by their work. i never, ever criticize a jury. theirs is the task of deciding what to believe. >> reporter: the prosecutor also said that what really hampered the case was the frequent that -- fact that the decomposition, the six months it took to find caylee's remains, really hampered the prosecution because they lost so much crime scene evidence, fingerprints, perhaps they may have found on the duct tape and the laundry bag, phil. -- bill. bill: fel keating, thank you. alisyn has more. alisyn: we need to talk more about these jurors. they left immediately after the reading. remember this was after six weeks of being sequestered and finish of -- none of them wanted to talk about their momentous decisio
know it's still a big brick wall. and for those people who think circumstantial evidence isn't enough, i have two words for you. scott peterson. he's sitting on death row right now in california with exactly the same type of case. no cause of death, nobody sauce him murder anybody, nobody could link him forensically to any part of the death, but the jury looked at all of it together and they said, you know what? that's enough for that brick wall of guilt. >> and casey anthony, we saw her today. she mouthed something when she made it very clear the prosecutor tried to paint her as a bad mother. what do we think of how we've seen her behaving, crying, sometimes stoic, sometimes serious. >> actually, suzanne, one of the charges that the judge is going to give, and that's what we call it. legally speaking, we say the judge is going to charge the jury. and basically, all it means is he's going to give them an instruction book and the instruction book is these are the laws that apply to this case. okay? this is the first degree murder charge. this is the aggravated man slaughter charge. thi
decided to engage in just nothing but blatant character assassination. and that, i think, was the big problem in this case. they didn't have -- and they had a sequestered jury. and apparently the kind of guilt by osmosis that they would have seen if they weren't sequestered didn't seep into that jury room. instead of people saying that this is a tragedy, because anytime that you have a little girl who dies, that's a tragedy. to me is absolutely inexplicable. if you don't know what happened, how can you convict somebody beyond a reasonable doubt and put them to death? i mean, it makes no sense whatsoever. maybe it's good for iran or north corey ca but not in america. >> i'm going to ask everyone to stick around. we'll come back to you shortly. let us know what you think. we're on facebook or follow me on twitter @ john king cnn. i'll be tweeting tonight. up next, more what the defense did. how it did for their client with a reputation for truth telling -- in that vein we'll highlight some of the many statements casey anthony made that were simply not true, including an imaginary nanny.

amendment rights. >> a big part of it is how well you're doing it. i did a survey and i asked people who are voters whether they watch fox news or not and i found that 67% of republicans watch fox news several times a week or more. that you knew. but 54% of independents watched it several times a week or more. and 21% of democrats watched it several times a week or more. so there really is an effort here to try to demonize a source of information. and, you know, you guys don't make this stuff up. the stuff you're reporting is stuff that's happening. you know, pugh research did a study during the last campaign that as far as i'm concerned is definitive. they looked at the fox news stuff. not like we're doing now which is opinion. but the news part. the 6:00 and 7:00 news broadcast. and they did the number of seconds that were devoted to positive and negative coverage of each candidate. and the only network that came close to parody between positive and negative on obama and on mccain was fox news. the others were skewed four and five to 1 negative on mccain and positive on obama. >> spea
